Quilt Show for Red and White Quilts

 

http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/
Most of you have seen this before but I thought I'd show it again for the Red and White Quilt Show over at SewCalGal.
I made this back in July 2012.
Red hasn't always been one of my favorite colors but I had seen so many red quilts that looked awesome so I just had to make one myself. And I am so glad I did.
 
I found this pattern in a jelly roll book done in blue.
So I went digging in my scraps for all the red I could find.

The white fabric has little red dots on it - I bought that about 25 years ago to make my girls an outfit.

I use red thread and white thread in the quilting.
This was the 1st time I had ever done that.

 
If you have a red and white quilt go to SewCalGal and enter.
I can't wait to see all the quilts.
